The Book


makenew1I used to think that I knew what writing was and how to teach it well until I stopped teaching long enough to become a learner.

My students taught me that many writers need to move, and they need their writing to move as well. They need to write out of their seats and on their feet, spreading ideas across whiteboards and tables, lifting pieces up with their hands, cutting them apart, randomizing them, and tacking them into new and completely unpredictable forms.

Making writing requires dynamic spaces, collaborative cultures, and a commitment to using our words to make a meaningful difference to others.

Eager to make writers of even your most resistant students?
